About Derick & Julie - Villa Bellezza Owners

Villa Bellezza is an Old World winery and vineyard experience. It is designed as a small Italian village with its tasting room, restaurant and piazza. When you visit us, you will be transported from Wisconsin to Italy. At the center of the piazza is the village fountain. On three sides of the piazza are porticos that protect you from rain in summer and heaters that keep you warm in winter.

This is the product of dreams. Dreams of visiting Italy. Memories of all our Italian friends including Martino and Rosina in Zagarolo, Italy. Being surrounded by architecture that is timeless. Engaging with people who find joy in life – even in difficult times.

Derick and Julianne Dahlen have created this escape for our guests, our staff, and ourselves. We want to be in this place and to enjoy this life. Our Famiglia Bellezza wants you to be happy when you are here and to think fondly of your experience.

Villa Bellezza Wines

The Wines

Our wines are made from grapes grown by us and our friends. Our grapes are suited to our terroir. They can withstand the cold. They are aromatic and flavorful. These are the right grapes on which to build a successful winery. From these grapes, we make world-class wines.

About the Villa Bellezza Food

The Food

Wine wants to be accompanied by food. As part of our rural Italian experience, our restaurant, Il Forno, serves “country” Italian food. The brick oven is the center of our kitchen. In it, we bake both our pizza and pasta.
